Change in geo-politics on, only army can’t win war: Lt Gen R P Kalita

Guwahati, Nov 21 (PTI) Stating that a “change” is taking place in the geo-political sphere, Eastern Army Commander Lt Gen Rana Pratap Kalita on Tuesday said only the armed forces cannot win any future war without the involvement of the civil society.

As a ‘Guest of Gauhati Press Club’, Kalita said the “change” has impacted the Indian Army, which is undergoing a huge transformation currently on five different verticals of the force.

“Russia-Ukraine war is going on, Israel-Hamas conflict is also on. There is also a lot of instability in our neighbourhood. So, the whole geo-politics is changing. There is a change which is taking place. And it impacts not only our country but our armed forces as well,” he added.
